Normalcy

Or as close to it as possible I guess.  With all the holidays, turkey day, Avery's birthday, Christmas, and Logan's birthday, behind us, I'm hoping we can return to normal.  Whatever that is.

The snow is falling quite steadily outside,the drive in this morning was very slow, so I can't even imagine what tonight's commute will bring.  These Hoosiers just don't know what to do with 4 inches of snow.  And everyone is crying for spring already.  I think someone should tell them it's only the middle of January. *sigh*

Avery has officially conquered the stairs!  YIKES!!  And she's pretty quick at it too, little stinker.  Still working on walking though, but it won't be long before she's a full time feet walker.  I say feet walker, because she seems to have mastered walking on her knees!  She can walk if already standing, and Richard says she has stood without support a few times on her own.  Look out then!

Logan is a few weeks into basketball and seems to really be enjoying it, and has improved quite a bit just in a few weeks.  I also think he's glad to be back in school after the long break.  We're headed to the Children's Museum on Saturday with his best buddy Ethan to celebrate his birthday.  We decided to skip the big party this year.

And I am back on the Weight Watchers train.  Although it seems like I'm never really off of it.  I've struggled with my weight pretty much all of my adult life.  Well I shouldn't say struggle, it's been an all out battle.  I HATE the way I look and feel, yet just have no motivation to do much about it, ugh!  I've been a WW member again (for the 1000th time) for a few months now, but really haven't accomplished much.  I'll do good for a few weeks and then slack.  I haven't really gained any more weight, so I guess that's good.  But still frustrating.  My struggle is with exercise.  I despise, loathe, hate, whatever word you want to use, exercise.

I'm not a good sleeper, so getting up earlier in the morning is just not happening.  And I've been working some long hours and late night lately, so the last thing I want to do when I get home is exercise.  It's really been my biggest struggle.  I always have good intentions, just never works out.  I do fairly well with the eating right.  I love my fruits and veggies, and haven't been much of a junk eater.  So my downfall is the exercising.  And I have yet to find anything to kick my butt into gear.  So maybe now the blog will become my exercise journal, might help make me accountable.  Sounds good now, but we shall see.

  3. Exercise 10 minutes a day. Start with that and it can be as simple as making sure you take the stairs more or doing some lunges at the office or wall sits or some stuff. It doesn't have to be an hour a day right away and remember it all adds up!! You can do it my love :)
